In order to expedite the ASCII load we suggest the following.
Stop eH services, stop Httpd services, stop database then, start the database only (no eH services) and run ASCII save. This approach will reduce the temporary database objects, clean up the AQs and improve the load performance.
In addition to the above information; If you stop eHealth and the Web before taking the save, this will reduce the temporary database objects and clean up the AQs. By doing so you will subsequently improve DB load times when that particular save is loaded.
